King’s Lynn Town eye derby double over Cambridge City
King's Lynn Town make the short trip to St Ives tonight to play their final away game of the season.
The Southern League Premier Division Linnets take on a Cambridge City team who are playing what would have been a fifth game in little more than a week – had Saturday's match at Stratford Town not been postponed.
The Lilywhites – currently groundsharing with St Ives – lost 2-1 at Paulton Rovers on Tuesday, were beaten 3-0 at 'home' by Chippenham Town on Thursday but edged Rovers in Monday night's return 2-0.
The Linnets, by contrast, go into their derby having failed to win in three matches, losing their last two. A defeat this evening would by the first time this campaign Gary Setchell's side have lost three games on the bounce in the league.
Lynn's boss, who watched his side beat Cambridge 1-0 at The Walks in August, was not happy on Saturday as his side were beaten 2-0 at Slough Town. He was in a similar mood before Christmas after making what turned out to be a wasted trip to St Ives' Westwood Road ground.

A part of the pitch was deemed unplayable by Lowesfoft-based referee Adrian Sonnerude, who called the December game off at 7.10pm.
At least it allowed Setchell to come out with the classic line: 'All I can do now is get in my car, get a McDonald's and go home.'
